Beware against Fraud/Scams
We encourage you to read the following and make yourself aware of the warning signs of the most common kinds of Internet and Email frauds in ever information.
There are two types of email scams – 'phishing' and 'spoofing'. In both the cases, the 'from address' is forged to make it appear as if it came from a source that it actually did not come from.
What is Phishing?
Phishing is a type of fraud whereby someone sends you an email, posing as MORGANMINDS or another trusted company, in an attempt to acquire your username, password or credit card details. These deceptive messages often mimic legitimate and trusted organizations, like MORGANMINDS, and can be sent via email, SMS, instant messaging or social media platforms. The aim of these emails is to trick you into clicking on links to a fake website where you are encouraged to enter confidential details or you may accidentally download a 'Trojan' or 'key logging' program, which could compromise your security.
More information about Phishing scams and how you can protect yourself against them is available here//www.antiphishing.org/resources/overview/
What is Spoofing?
Spoof emails usually include a fraudulent offer of employment and/or an invitation to perform a monetary transaction. Such email scams are, unfortunately, common across the world and could target anyone - including unsuspecting jobseekers who have registered with career-dice.com
The sender's address is often disguised and/or the sender may not have provided the entire contact information, such as, the correct physical address, phone numbers and email ID.
The precautionary measures jobseekers could take to protect themselves against suspected spoof emails have been mentioned above
Scams and spam
Electronic junk mail is commonly known as spam. These are electronic messages you haven’t asked for that are sent to your email account, mobile phone number, or instant messaging account. The content of spam messages varies. Some messages promote legitimate products or services, while others will attempt to trick you into following a link to a scam website where you will be asked to enter your bank account or credit card details.
How can you check if an employer / Institute / a recruiter is a fraud or genuine?
Below are a few things we can suggest you could try (you are encouraged to exhaust all possible ways, not just be limited to the following) to ascertain the legitimacy of the employers who contact you:
1. Have you heard the name of the before?
2. Do you remember applying to this particular institute /company or did the offer come unsolicited?
3. Does the domain name in their email address match the name of the same? For example if you get a job offer from XYZ Petroleum Company, and their email ID is email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org then it’s a fake company. Real companies use their own domain name on their email, and do not use free email providers.
4. Search on Yahoo, Google or MSN to see if the company has a genuine website. Also check if other people have reported that the employer has been involved in job scams previously.
5. Note the country that company claims to be working in, and offering you a job in. Most fake companies offer scam jobs in Africa, Middle East, Asia, South America, and to a much smaller extent, US or Western Europe.
6. Find out if you need to pay the company for anything. If they ask you to pay - at first or even after some time - for visa, work permit or for travel, chances are it's a fake company.
Remember, If you have received (or receive) any such suspicious email communication from a possible Morganminds client, do not hesitate to report it to us at email@example.com You can also block the employer from contacting you in future, from your Account Settings.
